Question 86' Honda Civic SI PGM Issues

Ok this is my situation:

Picked up this car for $200 Dollars US from a guy I work with. The car runs fine IF you can get it to fire. It will turn over fine but only fire if the PGM light on the dash lights up and the fuel pump pumps a little.

The problem is getting the PGM light to come on. I worked on it for nearly four hours and THOUGHT I had narrowed it down to a short in the Fuel pump because the car was starting every time and idling fine. Take it off of the jacks and go to start it up and nothing. -.-

So back up on the jacks it goes. NOW I cant get it to do anything. I straight wired the Fuel pump just to see if I could bypass the whole PGM issue all together but that does work. Fuel pump runs but the engine will not start.

The car didn't have the owners manual so I'm having to use a Honda Universal Manual for Accords **They are somewhat similar**.

Thought I would see if anyone could help me out with this.
Yes, there is fuel in the car.
No, there isn't a fuse just for the fuel pump I checked.
Yes, the battery is good and the terminals are connecting perfectly.

Someone told me the fuel pump sensor but I'm not sure where to find it.
Or possibly the ignition switch could be causing this problem?

Thanks in advance.
